After the devastating earthquake in Japan, people around the world banded together to support Japan’s relief efforts in any way they could. New Yorker Phil Michaelson took action in his own unique way.
"I wanted to bring the restaurant and food publishing industries together to help affected people in Japan," explained Phil Michaelson, creator of KeepRecipes.com.
He reached out to the country's top chefs and renowned foodies to contribute their recipes to the site’s newly launched initiative KeepRecipes for Recovery to raise money for the Red Cross relief efforts in Japan. Some of the most esteemed culinary masters including Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Chef Anita Lo of Annisa NY, Madonna’s personal chef of seven years Mayumi Nishimura, BONDST NY’s Chef Marc Spitzer, and Former Iron Chef Judge Eric Gower contributed a total of 21 Japan-inspired recipes.
